During the ongoing CeBIT event, ASUS has two of its newest motherboards on display. Their peculiarity lies in the fact that they are based on the Intel P55 chipset, and have the LGA-1156 CPU socket, supporting the upcoming Intel Core i5 series processors. ASUS chose the "P6T" prefix for naming its first generation of LGA-1366 motherboards based on the Intel X58 chipset. With LGA-1156 and Intel P55 chipset, the company plans to use the "P7U" prefix. The two motherboards on display are the P7U and P7U Pro.

Both motherboards have identical PCB layouts, except for the P7U having a few features toned-down. Both use a (3+1)+2 phase CPU power circuit. Both feature 4 DDR3 DIMM slots for dual-channel memory. Six SATA ports, a PCI-E x4 and a number of PCI-E x1 slots make for the rest of the mix. While the P7U Pro features two PCI-E 2.0 x16 slots (which arrange as x8, x8 when both are populated), the P7U features a single PCI-E 2.0 x16 slot. Both models feature ASUS-exclusive features such as Turbo-V that allows on-the-fly overclocking, ExpressGate that is a basic instant-on OS, and the EPU power management feature.

I was kind of hoping that with the P55 chipset we would see 16x/16x crossfire but I guess thats reserved for the highend only. I was really considering upgrading to P55 and Core i5 but at this point I think I am just gonna ride out my P45 and C2D as long as I can. And hopefully those are just prototype boards. I saw those and immediately thought of my P5LD2 *shudders*

That CPU socket seems a bit close to the memory slots.

Nice of them to use the same board so you can resolder a PCI-E x16 back on where that x1 slot is.

(And yes, this does work from what I've seen before, its just fiddley).

Thats got to be one helluva mod. Turn your non-crossfire board into a crossfire board with just one not-so-simple step. I'm not too shabby when it comes to soldering but I think I would have to pass on swapping out slots on my motherboard

A bigger cooler wont be able to fit on that board with all the Ram slots filled.
